    I was teasing...I'm sure it was a misspelling.

    And now that the snickering has subsided, the ACTUAL ANSWER:

    A .mac account is a holdover from MobileMe, which as you know is shutting down real soon. You can't change the name on your .mac account. HOWEVER:

    You also have the same name as a .me account, and you CAN change the name on that account here:

    https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/We...MyAppleId.woa/

    Alternatively, you can just create an all-new (free) iCloud account (which will also end in .me) with the name you want, and let the .mac one expire at the end of the month (but keep it if you've bought anything from iTunes/App Store/etc with that account -- just retain it for buying things, and use the new one for e-mail).

    Hope that helps!
